One of the disadvantages of using Google Stadia on a smartphone or tablet is that you must connect your controller via a USB-C cable. However, this scenario will change as early as next year.

Google announced that in 2020, It will now be possible to use the Stadia controller on any smartphone, tablet or PC wirelessly. Still, the company does not say when exactly this option will become available.

Until this happens, a USB-C cable will be required to be able to connect this command to the smartphone. It’s not the end of the world, but it will be more advantageous to be able to use this accessory wirelessly.

However, you can take advantage of a third-party command to play Google Stadia games. Many controllers developed for Xbox, PlayStation or Nintendo Swtich can be connected to a smartphone via Bluetooth.

Portugal is outside the Google Stadia launch countries

As with many Google products, Stadia has literally moved alongside Portugal. The US giant saw no advantage in bringing this streaming gaming service to our country, but Spain was contemplated.

The reasons for this are not known, but now that Google Assistant already speaks Portuguese there is a greater hope that this and other services will reach Portugal. This could happen if Google decides to extend Stadia’s coverage area.

For now, it’s just 14 countries with access to Google Stadia. Given the nature of this service, we only see advantages for widening the target markets.

Gaming is an area that crosses borders and ages. With a service like Google Stadia, our hardware is no longer a hindrance as this process is performed on Google’s servers. For a monthly fee, we have all games available on smartphone, television, PC or tablet.

Attention! Bug on Android is frustrating users using PIN code

Last September, some Pixel users who use the PIN code to unlock their Android could not sign in to their device. Two months later, it seems that this bug has not been fixed and is now affecting third-party smartphones.

There are users of smartphones from Sony and OnePlus who are starting to complain about the same problem. This bug is apparently affecting models running Android 9 or Android 10.

Users cannot access your smartphone by its PIN code

The bug in question occurs when users try to use your PIN code to enter your smartphone. After validating your code, the smartphone screen turns off and then back on the lock screen, as if nothing had happened.

That is, if you have no other method of authentication enabled or available, you will be unable to access your device. A scenario that can be problematic for those who really need to use their smartphone.

Problem will stem from a process of validating your password

Recent Discoveries maintain that the cause of this bug is a method called “Synthetic Password Key”. In short, this method compares the code you entered as stored in the system.

It appears that this procedure is not being completed, returning a null value. It is this null value that is causing Android to crash.

As far as we know, this problem is not widely dispersed in the market, affecting a small group of users. Even so, it is important to alert you to using various smartphone unlocking methods whenever possible.

Google has said that it is aware of the issue and has already referred the case to the appropriate department. However, a solution has not yet been shipped to market.

Amazon has a habit of making celebrity voices such as singers or actors available in its Alexa smart column, to vary from the standard voice. The most recent addition is Samuel L. Jackson, whose “voice” can be added to the column catalog by 99 cents. All in English only is clear.

This way, Amazon Alexa users can now have Jackson’s voice answering music requests, weather status and all sorts of questions. Just ask Alexa to introduce you to Samuel L. Jackson or buy your voice manually.

Samuel L. Jackson’s voice has been recreated with technology

Instead of recording a ton of pre-made sentences, Amazon used a neural network that converts text to voice. Of course, the actor had to spend hours in the studio recording audio to create a sound base. However, the end result is a kind of deepfake vocal.

Comedy video “predicted” the actor’s voice on Alexa

In 2017, the comedy YouTube channel 80 gumdrops has released a video about a family that just bought an Amazon Alexa. The funniest part is that the column comes with the voice of Samuel L. Jackson by definition. During the video are played several sentences of his most iconic movies, complete with profanity and all.

Alexa will have an option “uncensored”

Samuel L. Jackson is known for his characteristic voice and a great use of profanity in his roles. As such, Amazon includes an unfiltered version of the voice, where the answers will be much more explicit. This option can be enabled or disabled in Alexa settings.
